Mario Balotelli: Was not on Inter's radar, claims Moratti

Balotelli is in Milan for a medical with the Rossoneri on Wednesday after the Serie A giants agreed a fee with City.

Should the Italian striker complete the move it would end a turbulent spell in England since arriving from Inter in 2010, with his exploits both on and off the pitch leaving their mark.

The Nerazzurri were being linked with the 22-year-old before fierce rivals AC Milan made their move but Moratti insists a deal was never on the cards.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "Balotelli could be a bargain for AC Milan but that's their own business.

"There is no regret for us since he had already played here and at this time we didn't need him.

"A deal like this can serve (AC Milan president Silvio) Berlusconi for many reasons. But it is a deal that we could not and did not want to do."

Meanwhile, Stuttgart midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic has confirmed he is on his way to Inter despite interest from other clubs, with Liverpool thought to be keen.

He told tuttomercatoweb.com: "I'm happy to come and play for Inter. Tonight I will be arriving in Milan.

"There was also the interest from Valencia but my desire has always been to return to Italy."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
